Inter Still in Pole Position to Purchase Genoa Staple

Inter and Genoa will stay in touch after finalizing the Josep Martinez deal, as Albert Gudmundsson remains the top offensive target for the Scudetto winners. It’ll be a slow burn. The Nerazzurri need to offload a few players first, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs (via Mediaset).

The Icelandic striker has given his priority to them and isn’t being hounded by other teams at this stage. The deal is already in place. It’d be a season-long loan with an obligation to buy. The Grifoni addressed their present financial needs by selling their goalie. They’ll take care of next year’s ones already with such a formula. Due to previous debts and an agreement with the income revenue authority, they have to be in the black in every balance session.

If the pieces fall into the right place, Gudmundsson will transfer to Inter with a €30/35M valuation. The Nerazzurri are contemplating a clause that would protect them as the player could face trial in his home country over sexual harassment charges.

The Italian champions need to part ways with Marko Arnautovic and Joaquin Correa before onboarding a new attacker. According to Tuttomercatoweb, they hosted an intermediary who primarily works in the Middle Eastern markets on Thursday. They are also looking for a buyer for goalie Andrei Radu. He’s back after a disappointing loan spell at Bournemouth.

Our Take on Inter and Gudmundsson

His age, will, substantial price tag, and uncertain legal situation don’t make him a hot target despite his splendid season. The Nerazzurri have the inside track, but it remains to be seen how long Genoa will be willing to wait, and if other teams will swoop in after their early plans don’t work out.
